Natural Firefall at Horsetail Falls in Yosemite
by Donna Ruiz
Water In Nature Photos Contest Entry
For 6 years I have gone to Yosemite to try to capture this Natural Firefall. Conditions for this happen for only 2 weeks in February and only when weather conditions are right and only when there is water in Horsetail Falls. The drought in California led to a dry waterfall for 4 of the 6 years. One year it was overcast each day I was there. Last year, everything came together. There was water in Horsetail Falls and the weather was perfect. This turned out to be the most exciting photography experience I have ever had. My husband and I got to the spot we had selected early each day to claim our spot. By the time the sun started going down we were shoulder to shoulder with at least 100 other photographers. As the light began to hit the falls the click of all the camera shutters was exciting. When the light finally faded, the entire group erupted in cheers. One of the most beautiful sites I have ever seen and such an awesome feeling of community with all of the other photographers.
